Design Example 3 Rectangular Silo

Design a single rectangular concrete silo for storing peas. The bottom is a symmetrical

pyramidal Hopper. The silo walls rest on the Hopper base which is supported by four

columns. The Roof load ( DL = 150 kg/m 2 and LL= 100 kg/m 2 ).

Since the edge beam is to be joining the vertical wall using dowels. The upper wall shear and horizontal components of the hopper are assumed to be in equilibrium. Thus no horizontal load is carried by the edge beam. Its only purpose is to simplify construction. Minimum longitudinal steel and shear stirrups are provided

Vertical Wall

The vertical walls are analyzed as deep girder (strut and tie analysis can be used) to carry vertical the following vertical loads:
